Police demand $100,000 from parents for daycare CCTV access

The decision by Busan police to charge over 100 million won ($95,000) to parents wanting to access CCTV footage from a daycare center ― due to suspicions of child abuse ― has raised questions as to whether the financially burdensome demand was appropriate.

The parents, who have been sending their child to a state-run daycare center, recently reported to Busan Gijang Police Station their concerns that the child might have been abused at the facility and requested access to two weeks of video recordings from a surveillance camera set up there.

However, officers at the station informed the parents, Jan. 20, that they would have to pay the extravagant fee.

The money, the police explained to the parents, was to cover the cost of editing the video to censor everyone other than the parents' child to protect their privacy in accordance with the country's Privacy Act. The video could only be released in its original state if both the parents and all the people in the video agreed to allow the parents access to the uncensored version.

Court allows imports of life-size sex dolls

A Seoul court has allowed the import of life-size dolls, saying such sex toys for personal use do not corrupt public morals.

According to the Seoul Administrative Court on Monday, it has recently overturned a decision by Gimpo International Airport's customs office to block the import of a mannequin.

In January 2020, a local company tried to import one sex doll from China through the airport in Gimpo, western Seoul. But the gateway's customs authorities put the entry on hold, saying that the material would harm public morals.

But what if the dolls are only going to be used for sporting events?

This year we chose not to pick a "fave member", simple because you are all important.
As cheesy as it sounds, the community wouldn't be the same without people taking time to make posts (and exclusives), without your witty sense of humour in the comments; or even without the lurkers who pop to vote in the contest.
Good job omona, you made it through 2020!!!!!

💕 Thank you all for participating! 💕
